Acapulco Gold (Barney's Farm)
Acapulco Gold is an honest and quite successful attempt to recreate a legendary strain of pot that was lost in the 80s. Most phenos have characteristics of a pure sativa: a lot of long thin branches, narrow and not too abundant leaves and long internodes. Our tips: don't extend the veg for too much because these plants take 3 weeks to start flowering and stretch a lot in the meantime. Sometimes, to induce bud formation it is necessary to give them 11 hours of light and 13 hours of darkness. To control height it is advisable to top them early - above the 4th or 5th node. Acapulco Gold requires a lot of light. Don't use a too 'hot' soil mix and don't overfeed the plants, especially in veg. The buds aren't always dense, nor the harvests - always big but experienced growers will be surprised with how much this weed can produce under optimal conditions. Only one grower complained that his 20 seeds grew into mediocre plants with fluffy and leafy buds and no resin production. Most describe this strain as very resinous.
Acapulco Gold gives one a powerful energizing trip that makes you want to be active, to work, to think deep and creative thoughts. At the same time, the high is strong enough to make you space out when overindulged.
When used in moderation it's a pick-me-up stuff and can be smoked in the morning and afternoon. Late in the evening it's better to use it mixed with some indica otherwise you won't be able to sleep.
The buds have a complex and intense taste and smell and the smoke is exceptionally mild for such a strong strain.
